Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Where on Stack Exchange should I ask questions like "What's the best initial tutorial for..." or "What is the best way to learn..."?

SO/SE isn't the whole internets. There are plenty of outlets that serve markets not served here. – Won't Oct 21 '11 at 17:46

In order to give you some, I'd have to do the same thing you would--search for them. – Won't Oct 21 '11 at 17:55
    
Here's the best tutorial: chillibreeze.com/tutorials/Tutorial-HowtoWriteATutorial.asp There, now you needn't ask that question. – Adam Davis Nov 3 '11 at 15:22

Just don't. It is extraordinarily rare for a "what is the best X" or "give me a list of X" question to be appropriate for any Stack Exchange site.

If you have a more specific problem, please ask about it directly. Beginner-level questions are welcome on most sites.

Is softwarerecs.stackexchange.com the extraordinarily rare exception? I love that site and I wish there was a similar community rated knowledge base for tutorials and examples. Searching through the jungle turns up a lot of junk that could have easily been filtered with some down votes. Similarly, up votes would help the cream rise to the top. – Jeff Puckett II May 25 at 16:38
    
Yes, it is. That site didn't exist back when this answer was written... I don't think anyone back in 2011 would have predicted that the team would ever allow an entire site just for recommendations. – Pops May 25 at 18:26
